Who’s Coming to Virtual Carifest?

In 2019 we were so excited to bring Barbados’ foremost female Soca star, Alison Hinds and Trinidad’s princess, Patrice Roberts! They both sang their timeless Soca hits and dominated the stage with energetic performances.

The CARIFEST PARADE [ROUTE] starts at 11AM at Olympic Plaza with hundreds of masqueraders dancing to the rhythms of Caribbean Music down Stephen Avenue to Shaw Millennium Park. Later in the evening from 2PM to 8PM the SUNSHINE FESTIVAL will take place at Shaw Millennium Park with live performances!

2021 Parade Route

Our parade starts from Olympic Plaza, proceeding down the length of Stephen Avenue until we get to 11 St SW where we make a left turn and then a quick right into the parking lot on the south side of the Mewata Armoury. Revellers enter Shaw Millennium Park from that parking lot.
“But the importance of Carnival is that it teaches individuality, expression, community and selfhood.”
